WORSHIP SCHEDULE UPDATE
As we all seek to navigate the shifting landscape of COVID-19, it is important that we continue to make decisions within the primary consideration of safety. Unfortunately, one of our staff members has tested positive for COVID-19. First and foremost, we ask for your prayers of healing and grace. Secondly, out of an abundance of caution and care for our church family, we have decided, under the advisement of our Conference office, to suspend in person worship for the next two Sundays - August 2nd and August 9th. We will also cancel all in person church activities and will close the office through August 9th. We will reassess matters in the coming weeks and make decisions for future church events accordingly.
We will broadcast services through our television ministry and Facebook Live on August 2nd and August 9th with minimal in-person leadership. We are so grateful to Lowe Toyota and our production team for their faithfulness and flexibility during this unique season. Please tune in on those Sundays and enjoy worshiping from home.
At this time, this is an isolated incident. However, in responding wisely and proactively to single infections, we can prevent an outbreak. Hopefully this will be a brief interruption of our normal schedule and we will be able to resume regular activities in two weeks. As always, if you need anything or have any questions, feel free to contact Pastor Josh. God bless!

Welcome! We are excited that you found us. My passion is helping people get to know Jesus Christ, whether it is introducing them to Christ or helping them know Christ more deeply.
At First, you can get to know Jesus more deeply through worship, prayer, study, sacrament, and service and find a family of faith at the same time. We hope that you will come and see us – there’s a place for YOU at First UMC!
